Is that where your 8 children came from? Only asking with the way you presented this reply.
There are plenty of decent women out there in all age brackets and saying Pinays are a dime a dozen is insulting to say the least. OMO.

Cheers, Steve.

Perhaps I should "come here sometime" and perhaps you should research some/all of the contributors on this site before suggesting you know it all, especially the ones that have the decency to respond to your posts, and yes while I have only spent 3 odd years in the last 8 living, working and visiting PH. I feel confident with my decision to relocate, positive in fact, definitely not negative as some are here.
A simple scenario. I am not happy living in Australia as it is far too expensive and our family is living in PH. Hence the move but hey, like most here I will not have to work in PH. as I as many others sorted their finances to not work and live on PHP 10K a month. If in 1, 5 or 10 years we are not happy then we move on.

Cheer, Steve.

You do not need to get your divorce recognized here before you can remarry in the Philippines. The Philippines is governed by Nationality Rule and our jurisdiction respect your legal status as adjudicated by the laws of your country. Meaning, if you are legally divorced in UK capacitating you to remarry that means you may validly contract a second marriage in the Philippines. Thus, notwithstanding the fact that your first marriage was with a Filipino national and the marriage was celebrated in the country. All you need is to show the Local Civil Registrar a document from your Embassy showing that you have the legal capacity to enter into a marriage in addition to your Certificate of Live Birth.

Your current girlfriend however, being a Filipino national, is another story. She needs a to get a judicial declaration of nullity of her first marriage first before she can validly remarry within the Philippine jurisdiction. The annulment process usually takes 2-3 years before the court renders a decision. The process is commenced by a psychological evaluation of the parties and two witnesses by a licensed psychiatrist. Attorney's fee ranges from P200,000 to P350,00 depending on the professional experience of the lawyer. Do not believe anyone who comes to you and tells you that he/she can get an annulment for her for a shorter period of time. It's a scam!

Hope this helps. All the best!

And the court decision is not a slam dunk. In the west if you have the grounds for a divorce and have the financial issues settled and child care issues settled the court will ALWAYS grant the divorce. In many places if you do not settle then a formula is applied to the assets and child care expenses and that if forced upon the parties.

Here even after jumping through all the hoops, paying the lawyers and other experts, the final decision can easily be no annulment.

Based on Statistics from Office of the Solicitor General and the Supreme Court, the percentage of those cases where the court denied or dismissed the Petition for Annulment of Marriage is actually less than 5%. As long as you can prove that one of the parties is psychologically incapacitated to fulfill the essential marital obligation and such incapacity is deeply rooted and is existing before the marriage although it only became manifest after the marriage, then there is no reason that the court will deny the petition. It is not as handy as getting a divorce, but it is what it is.
